Spotted quietly unloading trucks of sound equipment at the San Jacinto Street lock-up a little before noon, the "Golddigger" singer's entourage stirred buzz and drew spectators as they prepped for the unannounced jailhouse shows.


After kicking off with one performance for more than 200 men at the 701 San Jacinto building, West ducked down into the underground tunnel and turned up in the main Baker Street jail to do a second show for a smaller crowd of women.


Looking down from the second tier, men pressed up against the glass as they listened to hits from his gospel-themed Jesus is King album, according to video released by the Harris County Sheriff's Office.


Though the Lakewood visit has been in the works for a little longer, the jailhouse concerts came together at the last minute, after West' people reached out to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez on Wednesday to ask whether the county's top cop was down for a secret show.
